Announcing the IEEE VAST Challenge 2014
CTTSO is co-sponsoring the 2014 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST) Challenge. This year’s competition asks participants to use innovative visual analytics approaches to examine realistic but synthetic text, transaction, network, geospatial, temporal, and streaming data to solve an international missing persons drama unfolding on the fictitious island of Kronos. The Challenge is open to participation by individuals and teams in industry, government, and academia. See http://vacommunity.org/VASTchallenge2014 for details.
